What are some things to see in Milan or nearby? Going next week
We stayed in PH Milan and (since we weren't too interested in the actual city) did day trips to lake como,  the borromean islands, and locarno (just over the Switzerland border and my favorite by far)

Yup.
It's a beautiful place.
Take a boat ride from town to town and enjoy walking around.

Any Jewish history to see in Milan?

We drove along the shore and stopped in a few places (one had a park). You can prob do a boat ride but we didn't as we came too late in the day.

Many options. Belaggio is a popular destination.

+1 don't just go to Como. It is dreary compared to Belaggio.
It's a pretty scary drive in a one lane two way road on the side of a mountain. But well worth it
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

Anything closer that's nice to see? To Belaggio it's an hr and half from MXP,  I have a 10 hr stop I guess it's enough time, how long do you hang out at Lake Como?

And this is all possible with a 10 hr stop?

You can do an hour. Two. Or your whole stopover. But I'd give 2 hours for each way.

sounds good. To there I have a chauffeur that EK will provide, but what are the options to return to MXP or to the kosher restaurant in Milan?
